About the Author
Lisa Saunders, a former licensed childcare provider and graduate of Cornell University, wrote "Help Childcare Providers Fight CMV" because she didn't find out about CMV until after her daughter Elizabeth was born severely disabled by congenital (present at birth) CMV. She was also the mother of a toddler and didn't know the precautions to take when handling bodily fluids such as saliva. Since the death of Elizabeth during a seizure in 2006 at the age of 16, Lisa has been raising CMV awareness through writing, speaking, helping Connecticut pass a CMV testing law in 2015, and working to ensure all childcare providers learn of their occupational risk for CMV. Lisa is the author of several books including her memoir, “Anything But a Dog! The perfect pet for a girl with congenital CMV,” and the articles, "The Danger of Spreading CMV: How We Can Protect Our Children," published by ChildCare Aware of America (2017) and "Help Childcare Providers Fight CMV" published by National CMV Foundation (2018).

My wife was a childcare provider during her pregnancy who was unknowingly afflicted by CMV. We wished there was a book at that time that would have warned and educated us about the risks and health affects of CMV on unborn children. This book gives good advice and helpful teaching tools to childcare providers and families who use childcare.
Starting on page six our daughter's story is shared.
Thank you Lisa Saunders for all the love, hard work, tears and dedication on making this virus known, thus trying to spare more people, babies and children from the effects of this little known virus that affects so many lives so silently.
